A Fundamental Difference

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What’s the difference between the inner work of the 99% and the 1% of the population who have the aspiration to inner correction? What is the fundamental difference?

Answer: The difference is that the 99% of humanity lacks the opportunity to discover and realize the method of integral unification on their own. However, the 1% consists only of those who have an inner drive toward it, who wish to learn this method and reveal the integral system. These people are our students, representatives of all nations and races that are literally on every continent of the world.

To the extent that they realize the method of integral unification, they begin to understand that they are facing a tremendous task: to teach it to the whole world. And by that we don’t mean just talking about it in some books or articles. We must be educators, enlighteners, lecturers, and organizers. No one except us will be able to do this because we attain this system, feel it, observe it, and see it; thus, we can bring people to it and build up all of human society accordingly.

If we start inventing some new world laws now, we would encounter horrible resistance from nature. We practically didn’t feel the resistance from nature before. The present crisis is only the “first fruit.” It is true that the US experienced an economic crisis in the 1920’s, but it wasn’t so extreme.

The fact is that we are beginning to experience a counter force from nature. Two opposite systems are in combat: the egoistic linear system and the integral, round system of nature. These are completely different systems. Therefore, we will experience enormous blows and misfortunes constantly. No matter how much more we invest in our egoistic development, we will just exhaust ourselves, our efforts, our resources, and our opportunities until we simply degrade to a primitive level; it’s possible that we will come to this.

In general, from nature’s point of view, whatever path we take to reach integration is irrelevant; the most important thing is that we become similar to it. If we are ready to integrate only externally while our egoism remains in a primitive state, then we will become cavemen once again. It goes without saying that instead of seven billion people on the planet only seven million or even less will remain, for example, but from the side of nature it doesn’t matter. Most importantly, the law of equivalence to nature, the congruence of systems, should be followed. This flows out of our Kabbalistic research, which allows us to see this whole system.

I hope that we will be able to explain this to people before they resort to wars and conflicts because they are feeling helpless and unable to do anything. It doesn’t matter how many G8 or G20 meetings are held and so on, these meetings just resemble a palace of reception and nothing more. And gradually it can lead to horrible consequences.
